Castelain Blond Biere de Garde

This beer is by the brewers Benifontaine in France.  Biere de Garde is the only beer style that is indigenous to France.

This 6.2% ABV beer pours dark honey golden, with an orange hue as well.  There is a quarter inch of thick but fizzy white head.  The aroma is malty, grainy, fruity, mostly cherry, bright and crisp.  The taste is malty yet fruity, following the aroma.  It is well carbonated and drinks crisp and refreshing.  This is an excellent and enjoyable beer.
